St. Charles – Big Muddy Speaker Series
The St. Charles series is held at 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at Big A’s Restaurant in historic downtown St. Charles.
St. Charles was founded because of its location on the Missouri River. Today we are lucky to have so many experts willing to share their knowledge with us about this amazing river, its floodplain and the nature and history that surrounds it. We’re trying to keep the topics varied and interesting, but if you have an interest in the Missouri River, we think you’re going to love these.
